ST. MARY WITHOUT - THE - WALLS
HANDBRIDGE, CHESTER, CH4 7HL
World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation which enables us to hear the thoughts of women from all parts of the world: their hopes, concerns and prayers. The preparation for the day is vast. An international committee is based in New York and there are national committees in each participating country. Regional conferences meet to consider the service and then local groups make their plans.
On Friday March 6th 2020, men and women from the Chester area will gather here at St. Mary’s, Handbridge, to celebrate the service prepared by the women of Zimbabwe. Do join us for the Service and refreshments afterwards in the new Handbridge Centre.
The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 120 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world --- through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas before finishing in American Samoa some 38 hours later.
